I have noticed that my computer is slower after installing fusion on my 10.5.6 OS X installation. I opened my Activity Monitor and saw the following processes among others: vmnet-netifup vmnet-netifup vmnet-natd vmnet-dchpd vmnet-dchpd vmnet-bridge Yes, there are duplicates. I suspect these processes were installed with fusion on my machine. What are those background processes, what do they do, and is it safe to disable them? How can I completely uninstall Fusion, along with these background processes? And how can I make my computer run faster without uninstalling Fusion?
